Celebrate a “Season of Color in the Americas” and visit the Museum for a free, fun-filled day of vibrant activities your whole family will enjoy. Feel the rhythm of Latin American culture throughout the MFA; participate in a Cha-Cha dance workshops, watch performance art created by Venezuelan artists Nascimento/Lovera and Cuban artist Lázaro Saavedra, and get creative at activities inspired by the exhibitions, “Samba Spirit: Modern Afro Brazilian Art” and “Permission To Be Global/Prácticas Globales: Latin American Art from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection.” Guests can dance along (or learn how to dance) to Latin American beats with Edwin Pabon y Su Orquesta and Riobamba of Pajaritos in the Shapiro Family Courtyard, watch a classic Technicolor film, and join a tour or talk in the galleries. To celebrate Memorial Day, a 55-piece US Coast Guard Band will perform a selection of patriotic songs and American Standards at the Museum’s historic Huntington Avenue entrance.
